A Look Inside My Business Planner for 2018

PlanningPosted by Gaetana Tuesday, January 09 2018 10:40AM
This is a continuation from my blog post about my 2018 Planners.
In late 2017, I decided that I wanted my business to have it's own space dedicated to it. With that being said, in November I purchased a traveler's notebook from Mystics Little Gifts a pocket wide in Macchiato. Before this my business section was all the way in the back of my Recollections planner. I had a tons of inserts just thrown in there and it felt jumbled.With that being said lets get into my business planner.
On the elastics I have two charms that can be found on my website. The first being our Flutter Butterfly Charm and our new Initial Silver Plated Charm .
Dangling from the TN I have a custom charm that I made myself with rose gold tone charms. One charm saying "Strong" while the other says "Follow your bliss". You can find a nice mix of charms on my website.
All the dashboards I made myself using laminator sheets and folders from the Target Dollar Spot cut down to size. This first insert features my Fall Doll - Planner Die Cut, a hello tag from the Target Dollar Spot sticker book and a page tab that I made myself.

The tab is made from a Target Dollar Spot page flag that I put on card stock. I added a box sticker for extra decoration. I then laminated it and used double stick tape to adhere it to my dashboard.
On the inside of that dashboard I have my January 2018 calendar which is a free printable here on my blog. I used my favorite scallop edged scissors to give it a nice decorative edge.
My first insert is my Future Log is yet another free printable available here on my blog. You can use it for just about any type of forward planning but I use it for monthly goals.
My next insert is my monthly calendar which isn't shown and after that is my Weekly Planner from Wendaful.
The insert is the Midori Week on One Page with Notes and I'm completely in love with it. It's not only functional but I can still add stickers to it for a decorative touch. On the left side I put tasks that I want to accomplish on a particular day and on the right side with the grid I put anything extra. (ie:To do's for the week, Places I need to go, Items I need to buy, Habit trackers for anything I want to track for the week, and an area for tasks I want to do or schedule for the following week. I've been using stickers from PeachyChicCo and I'm loving it because I can do a full spread in my Recollections Planner, then plan in my TN and still have stickers to spare. Definitely check out her shop.
At the top of the page I normally have some type of clip to mark that page for the week. Last week I had my Flint Jeweled Paper Clip from my website.
On the backside of that dashboard/section I have a postcard that I got from my sister that came in a order she place somewhere. My next dashboard features a die cut from my Girl Boss Die Cut set and one of my very first fashion doll die cuts which isn't available any more.
On that dashboard I have one of my Hamsa Paper Clip Charm.
I then have a Habit tracker which I have turned into a PR tracker and a months insert which I track my website views daily. Unfortunately, I can't tell you where they are from because I can't remember and I have tons of inserts that I've saved on my hard drive but when my hard drive crashed I lost my bookmarks.
I have a pocket bookmark that I made using paper from the Target Dollar Spot and it holds functional stickers I might need on the go. It also sports a pen loop that I made which is holding my favorite gel pen from Dollar Tree. Don't sleep on them. You'll find some great lil' gems there.
The backside features a Heidi Swapp folder with more stickers because you can never have enough stickers.This section also has inserts to track my online sales. They're from SugarPinePapery.
They're made for a personal planner so I just shrunk them down by either 45 or 65% to fit in my pocket TN. I use them to track my sales on my Etsy shop and website. I've been using them religiously since I purchased them maybe a year ago.
On the inside back of that dashboard I have my Planner Die Cut which is no longer available.
My next dashboard features another die cut from my Girl Boss Die Cut set and a die cut from Goldmine & Coco which were include in the MadeWithSouthern Luv Ebony Queen Box.
This next section feature the AnniePlansPrintables Shop Owner TN insert. I've been on the hunt for a while now for the perfect insert for my business that features everything. I found it with this insert.
The insert features a Daily Shop Stats which is perfect to track your sales on a daily basis.
Plus notes pages. You can't get enough notes pages.
A customer section which I will be using for custom orders.Also not shown because I've written all over them are the Active Coupon Codes pages, Active Sales pages, Supply Order Tracker pages and Meet-up Donations pages. I highly recommend this insert set. It has a bit of everything and was super easy to print and cut which is very important.
This section features another die cut from my Girl Boss Die Cut set and a sticker from xquisitesoul , Ebony Queen Zoe Goddess Dress Up Planner Sticker Kit Erin Condren Vertical/ African American Stationery Stickers/ Happy Planner Stickers which was included in the MadeWithSouthernLuv Ebony Queen Box . I put on card stock and cut out and then adhered with double stick tape.
This next section features my Daily Expenses insert from Wendaful.
This next dashboard features a sticker quote from Me and My Big Ideas sticker book that I put on card stock and cut out then adhered to the paper. The fashion doll was from a sticker sheet that I got from my planner friend. I did the same as I did with the sticker quote.
This section features a notebook that came in the MadeWithSouthernLuv Ebony Queen Box from Paper Shae. I'm using it to write down product ideas. I love how thick the paper is .
I have another page marker which has a sticker from the Target Dollar Spot and our January freebie which everyone will receive with their Satin Doll & Co. stationery order.
I had the current sticker sheet I was using that week from PeachyChicCo behind that dashboard. This next dashboard features another one of those sticker dolls from xquisitesoul and a quote sticker from Me and My Big Ideas sticker book.
This section features list inserts most likely from Wendaful yet again.
Behind that dashboard I just have some stickers that I can use anytime.

And this completes my business planner. It's more about functionality then looking pretty. I'll probably decorate it more as time goes on but that's it. I was unsure about a pocket size but I love it. I can put it in my planner bag and put it in any purse and go.

What planner are you using for your business? What inserts are you loving? Feel free to share.
